X-Men: Next Dimension is a superhero fighting game that shows a lot of promise but comes up short in so many ways. And while the fighting mechanics are decent at best, the game fails to capture the raw excitement of playing as a favorite superhero or villain. Next Dimension is definitely a good rental for fans of the comics and movies.

Armchair Empire (7 out of 10) (70%)

While not as impressive as other Xbox fighters, the Marvel Universe comic book heroes and villains certainly look the best they ever have in videogame form in XND. The AI challenge pushes even the best gamers too. But the game’s good looks and taxing challenge level cannot help overcome the difficult fighting controls that made playing not very much fun at all. In fact, the controls absolutely ruin the XND experience. Even fighting game veterans will be reduced to button mashing mayhem. If this game’s controls could have came anywhere near the responsive wonderfulness of DOA3, this could have been a a great addition to the Xbox fighting game genre. As it is, only the most rabid of X-Men fans might want to consider picking up.

IGN (6.7 out of 10) (67%)

One of the least popular fighting games around the office in quite a long time, X-Men: Next Dimension is certainly not for everybody. Ribbed on as it may be by the other guys in the desks around me, nobody spent as much time with it as I did either. And nobody besides me was privileged enough to discover just how decent this one can actually be.

GameSpot (6.4 out of 10) (64%)

A number of X-Men: Next Dimension's characters require unlocking, and various other extras--mostly alternate outfits for characters--can also be obtained from repeated play. Still, the problems with the fighting system will probably keep you from playing X-Men: Next Dimension extensively. It can be a fine game to play with casual gamer friends who are fans of the source material, but since a number of better fighting games starring the X-Men already exist, it's hard to get too excited about this one. In the end, even the most ardent X-Men fans should probably just rent Next Dimension rather than buy it.

Encore une fois, les X-Men ne parviennent pas à convaincre sur console. Manque de rythme, réalisation trop limite, on les préfère largement lorsqu'ils apparaissent en 2D dans des productions plus musclées.

GameSpy (25 out of 100) (25%)

To its credit, the game does have two separate endings to story mode, however it is too little, too late. X-Men: Next Dimension is a bad game on any platform, but the Xbox version redefines horrid. Don't buy this game, don't rent this game, don't even bother playing this game -- it is more functional as a coaster than a game. Your Xbox will thank you for sparing it.
